    Parental Nightmares

    At some point, every parent has that nightmare that one day their toddler will wake up before they do and destroy the house while their still blissfully sleeping.  It happened years ago once with Nathan.  I woke up to him smashing a carton of eggs one by one onto the kitchen floor, giggling as he dropped each one.  Have you ever tried to wipe up a dozen eggs at seven in the morning?    Today I experienced an awful deja vu.  I had an instant panic attack the moment I woke up to an empty bed and an opened bedroom door.   (The fact that he still sleeps with us is a…

    That Time My Car Door Fell Off

    Bubba 0 | Karma 1 | The Blair Witch In Texas

    My husband’s high school friend, Terry, came to visit last week, and while I don’t often write about my husband, (the one pictured to the right is my husband, Bubba) I feel I have to retell a story they shared with me, that had me laughing until my face turned red. In fact, I think this story deserves to be told.  It’s not doing any good wasting away in their heads.  Haha. I hope it at least puts a smile on your face!    The Blair Witch In Texas Bubba, Terry, and Josh were the ripe age of sixteen when they decided to camp on a piece of land owned…
